Chad ...and physics. I've had great success on the SAT and ACT as well as my AP tests in high school, and I hope to help others succeed as well. My favorite subject to tutor is physics because I feel like learning to apply a few fundamental principles to different real world situations is extremely useful in any discipline. While tutoring I try to help students master the fundamentals so they can apply them to the...

Julian Biology, chemistry, and related electives are tough courses that demand rigorous study. As a tutor and soon to be medical student, I am passionate about helping students master these subjects. I know firsthand how difficult these classes can be and how important success is for acceptance into a professional school. My goal is to facilitate your learning in the most effective way possible by empowering you to be successful.... First, I like to find out what the student's academic goals are and what is his/her preferred learning style. Next, I tailor our tutoring sessions to most efficiently achieve those goals. Finally, I check learning progress by having the student teach the subject back to me.

Jordan ...year old nephew to my classmates in school. I don't think that science and math has to be as intimidating or scary as the world makes it out to be. Often times if we don't understand something, it's simply because it hasn't been explained to us in a way that caters to our strengths. I love math and the predictive nature of numbers. If I'm not in school you can probably find me in front...

Patrick ...task. That is why I love English. I have a very unique style of tutoring. When I taught, I had 120 students who learning and reading levels spanned seven grade levels (4th through 10th). A significant amount of my students were English Language Learners and almost all my students had different learning modalities or styles. This taught me how to identify and adapt. My tutoring style is much similar. Identifying your student's reading and leaning...

Jonna ...Masters in Arts of Teaching from Pittsburg State Univerty. In May 2014, I achieved my goal of getting a Masters in Mathematics from Emporia State University. I have taught high school math for 6 years and college level math for one year. I enjoy helping students achieve their goals. I have helped many students in math with their tutoring needs. I am a true Geometry fan at heart but I also enjoy Algebra.... I believe that education is an individual unique experience for all students. It is my desire as an educator to help students meet their fullest potential in their mathematics education by providing an environment that supports risk-taking, encourages individuals to think more rigorously, and invites a sharing of ideas. There are three elements that I believe are conducive to establishing such an environment: (1) the teacher acting as a guide, (2) allowing the individual's natural curiosity to direct his/her learning, and (3) making mathematics interesting.? Teacher as a guide. I feel that my main role as an educator is to guide the student's thinking process. By me providing access to information rather than acting as the primary source of information, the students' search for knowledge is met as they learn to find answers to their questions. For students to construct knowledge, they need the opportunity to discover for themselves and practice skills in authentic situations. ?Equally important is providing the opportunity to study things that are meaningful and relevant to one's life and interests. Developing a curriculum around student interests fosters intrinsic motivation and stimulates the passion to learn. In order to help make learning more relevant to a student, I believe that students should be an active part of the dialogue about the lessons and units of study. Given the opportunity for input, students generate ideas and set goals that make for much richer activities than I could have created or imagined myself. When students have ownership in the curriculum, they are motivated to work hard and master the skills necessary to reach their goals. ? Natural curiosity in the classroom. By allowing the students to help guide classroom discussion, you are providing an opportunity for deeper thought. A conversation in the classroom can help to spark an idea that a student can take further. By developing an interest on their own, students take control of their education, and that makes it more important to them. Allowing this natural curiosity to happen helps the students to increase the rigor of a lesson all on their own, with just the educator as a guide. Making math more interesting. I feel that mathematics is an important subject that everyone needs to have an understanding of. One way to help people better understand mathematics and its importance is making math more interesting. I feel that math needs to relate to the lives of the students. We are in a world now where students want to know how to use what they are learning. Learning goes beyond just a process. By connecting math to the real world, students will find it more interesting, and it will promote higher level learning.

Christopher ...I was in school I would regularly be tutoring other students. I also spent hours and hours tutoring others over the Internet. For me teaching is an adventure. Everyone has different perspectives, and when you are teaching you have to be able to both provide a new perspective and to understand (so as to enlarge) someone else's perspective. In my non-teaching time, I am interested in Physics and Mathematics and working out practical problems from...
